of rush limbaugh whose website compares the reform supporters to nazis. a conservative group that's backing the protest insists the anti-reform movement is there. how do you respobd to the charge that this is all orchestrated and artificial if it's coming from talk show hosts and websites? >> reporter: if that were the case, you wouldn't see the massive turnout. the average person is at work when rush limbaugh is on the radio. >> reporter: out of nowhere, a bystander listening in came up to us to say ditto. >> thank you very much. >> you happen to agree with this gentleman? >> i do. >> reporter: democrats are flexing their grassroots. the former obama volunteers are back in campaign mode. >> we have folks who are anxious about change who love to play the fear card. >> reporter: it's about facts not fear. but time and again, he falsely compared democratic health care proposals to a canadian style universal system. >> the ones coming out the house are not canadian style. you know that? >> universal health care in any way, shape, or form is a bad notion. >> reporter: as for senator j
at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi
is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
when you look at the polls. gregg: rush limbaugh increased the ante, calling deaths morocco -- calling barack obama hitler. some people found that offensive. look, are both sides not in a way guilty of inciting anger and obliterating good constructive civil discourse? >> absolutely. it is funny that nancy pelosi would say that they are opposed to obstructing other viewpoints. if they take that when it comes to speaking on the house floor, they might be more willing to listen to republican amendments. we reported this on human events. we have actually found some postings on craigslist for groups like summer for change, where it looks like democrats are recruiting people to come to the town hall as well. gregg: the president is asking people to back out people whose e-mail seems fishy. come on. is that not hypocritical for a former community organizer to complain about community organizing? >> this is more about setting a straight. if the democrats often not fight back, there is no way it will get through. republicans organizing in a town hall meeting tomorrow, going up there to defend h
limbaugh comparing nancy pelosi and the democrats to the nazis. that comes on top of those aechbt-obama town halls that featured at least one person carrying a sign that accused obama of having a nazi-style health plan. >> just say no! just say no! just say no! just say no! >>> as we pointed out before, this is a well-organized set of protests. those mob scenes are supported in part by a group called freedom works, and today the afl-cio, the labor organization announced it's going to send people to town halls as well to confront the anti-obama teams. we have organizers on both sides tonight to show the fight right here on the set. >>> plus, the battle for america. the story of the most exciting presidential election of our times. why did ted kennedy break with the clintons and support obama.
limbaugh -- because we do need both. rush limbaugh rallies the crowd and is a good job of educating people on issues. but you will rarely hear him say call congress. it is other voices is a call congress or go to your tea party. we need a variety of voices. the problem in the blogosphere, and we are really bad about this compared to the left, is if i do something at red state, a protest, there's going to be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would just do it their way instead of my way it would be more effective. you get that everywhere, but the right is notorious about everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or george will or glenn back. -- glen beck. i am a big believer at throwing stones are republican politicians have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house and it will hurt us because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. that's why we need to grow a lot of stone's right now so they figure things out before next year. inly the ri
as it would give ammunition to people he describes as the far right wing with it is rush limbaugh or sean and unity and the lights and people that apparently he feels has an antipathy toward the black community. don't have a sincere passion for helping uplift that community is so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. i think bill cosby said it's not a matter of airing dirty laundry. it's not as if there are people who don't know about the high dropout rates you don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children who don't know about the high incarceration rates and the celebration of the drug culture and as think it is so difficult to have the conversation. it is so painful for some to hear and then there are those who as the caller points out will legitimately use it to to distorted and in some cases use it to say we don't need social interventions to try to help those who have been left behind and often left behind because of historical and justice in society. said that if these people and thinking to positions that are highly polarized an
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th
the president retake center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is insane. what he's saying is insane. the first thing is it has been conventional wisdom among the smartest people in washington, this is a tough issue that needs to be done on a bipartisan basis. the obama administration decided not to. leaders of both parties could have gone out to the meetings. they didn't do that. they chose more or less a democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. it's not just the crazy, among who we just saw some. if you take overall ratings for health care, the american public is as skeptical as they were when clinton care collapsed. so, it's not just the crazies. there is a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disarovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are people who are angry and there are peop
into a pickup truck. when do you call it off? >>> later, the right wing crazy talk. after rush limbaugh called democrats nazis -- >> that is insane. what he's aissayin -- saying is. >> sarah palin spoke of death squads. >> and the other things we thought you should know. >> allow me the right to be able to challenge the charges. >> turn into your new internet buddy, blago. all that and more this hour on msnbc. >>> good afternoon, everyone. hey, david, i'm tamron hall live in new york. >> i'm david shuster live in washington. in "the big picture" president obama's push to control his message on health care reform. the president spoke with guadalajara, mexico today. he didn't specifically reference the heated town hall meetings that have erupted across the country, but he did say in time reform will pass. >> i suspect that once we get into the fall and people look at the legislation that's being proposed, that more sensible and reasoned arguments will emerge and we're going to get this passed. >> the white house has turned to the internet in an attempt to educate the public about health care ref
limbaugh and has the radio host, surprise, surprise, fighting back. what is up? >> what is up? nothing like a good hip-hop battle, is there? jay-z is in a new one now with bill o'reilly and rush limbaugh. the new song comes out next friday. he says it want black versus white, my man, please tell bill owl reilly to fall back and 2010 and that is mild dish but he knows who not to attack or not to retort because the man said had a perpendicular response that requires ear must haves for the kitty, i quote. i remind jay-z it is president obama who once mandated superstition. what? what? no magic negro stuff? what is going on? you're never going to get who might have been a weed smoker among the small pharmacies worth of drugs found, the police -- by the police in neverland mansion, multiple bags of marijuana plus rolling papers. it can't be certain michael jackson himself was toking but if he was, why was wasn't he getting stoned to go to sleep instead of taking the cocktail of prescriptions to get to sleep? lesson for the kids. >> if you're looking for a pharmaceutical combination for sleep and
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
limbaugh will be joining me and we will be talking about what's happening at the fcc and clamping down on free speech. we have a diversity czar now at the fcc. this guy will be the key of shutting speech down, talk radio down, people like me, people like you on fox. if you are -- if you are not embracing the new diverse world, which means one opinion, you're done. gretchen: very interesting stuff because of we thought that debate had gone away. >> oh, no. it hasn't even started. gretchen: stick around if you will, glenn because the national debt as you know has reached staggering heights. glenn is going to stick around and weigh in on that topic. bill: a man buys a billboard in the hopes of saving his own life. we will hear from his family straight ahead. gretchen: we're back with glenn beck who is the fox news host and the author of the best selling book common sense. in fact, we were commiserating amongst otherselves earlier in the show wondering if president obama on reading list has common sense. >> not even the book. gretchen: it comes in paperback. it would be easy to just hand i
news and to disrupt -- rush limbaugh and to disrupt the organized campaigns. you noticed that most of the disruption is in democratic town halls. they are not disrupting republican town halls. that let's you know it is planned. unfortunately like this last lady said, they are usually older people who are already on socialize medicare and either don't realize they are on socialized medicine already. texting host: thank you, jamie. a common from teresa from twitter. peaceably assemble. " the new york times" on the front-page reports on how people start their day with waking up and getting on line first. coffee can wait, the day's first stop is on line. i will pull this and just read a piece of the story. the surge in early risers is reflected an on line and wireless traffic patterns. internet companies that used to watch traffic levels rise only when people booted up at work now see the uptick much earlier. a boston company that analyzes internet use says web traffic and the united states gradually decline to midnight until 6:00 a.m. on the east coast and then a huge morning caffeine
that rush limbaugh made the other day about the democratic party and nazis -- every point he made with either misleading or false. we need a strong republican party to keep democrats in line. if we do not have a sensible republican party, we will get the opposite of what we had during the bush administration. that is where the democratic party failed to exercise their checks and balance responsibilities. it is the
is getting anything out of this debate right now except maybe rush limbaugh and sean hannity. they make millions of dollars a week, you know, just keeping this disaster going, this division. but actually, i am educated as well as a lot of people out here listening. and when i look for a bill, what is my money going for? i want it to be a republican bill versus a democratic bill, and discuss the issues rather than just making up -- i do not know. host: are you getting -- are you paying attention to all the back and forth from "hardball" to cnn to glenn beck? caller: yes, but i do not appreciate it because i do not know what bill they are talking about. we have three different bills, and so far as a republican i see that we do not have a bill. so what are we talking about? host: the three bills on the house side are -with the house ways and means, on the senate side is the health, education, and labor committee. there is no final bill yet until sometime in the fall. the president indicating that that vote could come in november or even into december. the front page of "the washington time
they are basically racist, they listened three hours a day to their leader, the fact, drug addicted rush limbaugh, and i am very concerned about heard they show up with ak-47's because that "is their right." they want this president to not only heard but they want him gone, and if you know what gone means you get my drift because they are never, ever going to give him leeway. and a republican who calls before me, they are very few and far between and as far as joe mceachern, the inbred in georgia, he calls in all the time, he is one of the radicals about taking the country back. what have they lost with him and the white house? please, have them call in and tell me. host: on page a3 of "the washington post" this morning, white house backs rights arms outside obama events. robert gates, white house press secretary said people are entitled to carry weapons outside such events if local law allowing "there are laws that govern firearms better done state or locally," he said. "those laws don't change when the present comes to your state or locality." caller: did they do it before? this is a sign to ob
limbaugh, he makes fun of the left. daily kos is good about beating and conservatives. most of you do not live in washington, d.c. or new york. you live somewhere else and so you don't have to cut it as cocktail parties and be beaten down all the time. the second thing i encourage you to do is to get the tools. there is no excuse for not having the tools. get the training. it's not enough to come to one conference and think that you now know everything that there is. it is a constant learning process. i am always striving to be a better writer. go read books. i would encourage you to get the logistical tools, whether a black bearing ore and i found allies you to videotape things -- you know, like town hall meetings? a video camera might come in handy at those events. tweet from your hand-held device. everyone should be doing that. you should all be on twitter. no. 3 is, to get network. there are a lot people in this room that you need to know. get to know them. this is a non-partisan think so there are libertarian groups. but a couple of people from the nrc see are here today, get to
rush limbaugh. >> you will find that the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastica logo. >> congressman scott's office was vandalized less than a week after he got into a heated argument about health care in a meeting. >>> another attack like the oklahoma city bombing could be a matter of time. that's what an atf agent total a civil rights group. it says anti militia governments are popping up at an alarming rate, opposing tax skbs liberal policies. the report also says others might be reacting to the country's first african-american president. but the atf agents did say there are not as many violent threats and acts right now compared to the 1990s. >>> new video shows massive mudslides and hundreds of people stranded in mountain towns. a deadly typhoon triggered mud slides and floods in china. helicopters are plucking survivors from villages. and food and water is being dropped for people waiting to be rescued. rain may ease up today, helping rescue efforts. >>> a police report shows that a famous college coach admits to having sex with a woman, accused of trying to ext
to contend with. first, rush limbaugh happily admitted he wants our president to fail. then a republican senator openly admitted he wants to block the health insurance reform for millions as a way to -- quote -- "break the president." another republican senator admitted that at least half of the other side's opposition to reform is purely political. and an influential commentator advised the republicans to avoid consensus at all costs and instead go for the kill. these partisan tactics have consequences. these consequences will be evident when every kitchen table, every family budget and every american's peace of mind. and they're watching. a poll released last week found that a majority of americans credit president obama for putting partisanship aside, trying to work with congressional republicans to get this done for the good of the country. republicans, they found, weren't returning the favor. others may be focused on delaying health insurance reform, but we will make sure we won't let that hafplt we already have seen what happens when we do nothing. the costs of sitting this one out
